Browsh is a fully-modern text-based browser. It renders anything that a modern browser can; HTML5, CSS3, JS, video and even WebGL. Its main purpose is to be run on a remote server and accessed via SSH/Mosh or the in-browser HTML service in order to significantly reduce bandwidth and thus both increase browsing speeds and decrease bandwidth costs.

Live SSH Demo

Temporarily offline
Just point your SSH client to, eg; ssh No auth needed. The service is for demonstration only, sessions last 5 minutes and are logged.
Note that SSH is actually a very inefficient protocol, for best results install Browsh on your own server along with Mosh.

In-browser Services

Temporarily offline
  • Uses very basic graphics and HTML anchor tags. Although this service may appear similar to the terminal client it does not yet have feature parity.
  • Uses nothing but pure text, better for usage with curl, for instance.
